GBP/USD keeps the daily range

The pair remained within the intraday range after the British economy expanded at an annual pace of 1.5% during the third quarter and 0.8% inter-quarter, banging on expectations. The Index of Services advanced 0.6% in the three months ended in August, a tad above forecasts at 0.5%. According to Emmanuel Ng, Analyst at OCBC Bank, “the BOE’s Carney also revealed a less stringent liquidity framework for banks. Look towards 3Q GDP numbers for further domestic cues today and the pair may continue to ply recent ranges in the interim with the locus still expected around 1.6200”.

The pair is now up 0.20% at 1.6232 with the next resistance at 1.6258 (high Oct.23) followed by 1.6260 (high Oct.1) and then 1.6300 (psychological level). On the flip side, a breakdown of 1.6119 (low Oct.23) would expose 1.6115 (low Oct.22) and finally 1.6096 (MA10d).
